Bedford High to participate in UNH jazz fest

The Bedford High School jazz band will travel to the University of New Hampshire on Saturday, March 12, to participate in the Clark Terry UNH Jazz Festival.

Each year, the festival attracts jazz groups from 55-60 high schools and middle schools throughout New England and New York. Performing groups include high school big bands, middle school big bands, jazz combos, jazz choirs and solo vocalists. All groups are adjudicated and given written and recorded comments.

Outstanding Ensemble awards and certificates will be awarded in each category.

The festival, in its 43rd year, will feature performances by the University of New Hampshire jazz bands and jazz choir, an afternoon vocal clinic and an evening concert.
